My Son was arrested on aug 1 for theft at walmart. I recieved a letter on August 12 saying that we owe them a "fine" of $150.00 that is a for civil damamges in accordance with V.T.C.A. TX CIV PRAC & REM 134.005.
The letter states that If we pay the fine he will still be charged criminally .
I do not feel like i should pay this letter because if we go to court Walmart can request restitution
Thank you! Audra
I do not see why we are being charged this fine he did not walk away with any merchandise.
I need to know if we should pay this letter or let it go until we go to court.
